How To Make A Spa In A Jar Gift:

Let your friends and family indulge in some much-deserved self-care this season with the best-personalised pampering gift, a spa in a jar! This is not only an incredibly thoughtful present for any occasion from birthdays to Christmas, but it’s sure to serve as a lovely pick me up when those closest need extra TLC during stressful times. Show them that you truly care by bringing joy into their lives through one of the most calming gifts anyone can receive, a bit of pampering at home.

DIY Spa in a jar gift

This spa in a jar gift can be as creative and personalised as you’d like. Start by gathering some essential pampering goodies, such as bath bombs, body scrubs or washes, facial masks, nail polishes, aromatherapy items like essential oils, candles or diffusers, and anything that will bring relaxation and comfort.

I’ve listed all the items in my spa in a jar, however, you can easily change these to suit the recipient. The jar I have used is a Kilner round clip-top storage jar. You don’t need to use the same jar but make sure the opening is large enough to fit all the items in.

The items in my spa in a jar:

Cotton face cloth – Eye mask – Under eye strips – Face mask – Exfoliating gloves – Hair mask – Nail clippers – Tweezers – Nail file – Toe dividers – Cuticle oil – Pink nail varnish – Nail top coat

DIY Spa in a jar gift

When popping the items in the jar, try to arrange them so the labels can be seen from outside. This way the recipient can see straight away what’s inside. It may take several attempts to get all the items looking the way you want inside the jar but just keep adjusting, you’ll soon get it looking perfect!

Once satisfied with the look of the jar it’s time to add on some decorations. I prefer simple decorations so have just attached some ribbons and a label. You don’t have to stop there you could add any other decorations you wish.

You can either attach a store-bought gift tag or make your own personalised gift label. If you would like to use the label I have used, you can download it here.

Alternative items to put in a spa in a jar? 

You could make it travel-themed with some travel essentials such as a travel-sized toothbrush, toothpaste, sanitiser wipes, and hand sanitiser as well as some travel shampoo, conditioner and soap bars.

How about a manicure or pedicure kit with a selection of tools, and nail polish and maybe include some homemade foot scrubs and soaks? You could also add some candles, chocolates, and maybe an alcoholic drink such as a miniature bottle of wine or ingredients for a cocktail or two.

The list of items you can use is truly endless. This spa in jar gift doesn’t also have to be for the females in your life. How about putting together a gift for the man in your life after all they need some pampering now and again too!
